Alice Walker Author Study | Body Biography | Collaborative Poster


Have your students create a collaborative poster and learn about Alice Walker in a new and engaging way!

Your students will create an author biography by researching Alice Walker and establishing her profile on a poster.

Students will learn about Alice Walker’s life and her body of work as a legendary author.

Additionally, they will discover the importance of collaboration and effective communication.

This is a great supplementary activity to any novel study for The Color Purple.

1) To construct the author study poster, your students will work in groups to conduct research on Alice Walker.

2) Students will then transfer their findings to boxes on the poster.

3) Next, they will work together to color or paint the pieces of the poster.

4) Lastly, students will tape together the final product.

The poster is made up of six pieces of paper, which can be printed on regular copy paper or card stock.

Once taped together, the final product will be roughly 28″ x 15″ and can last a lifetime if you laminate it!
